Baker closed out its tennis regular season against a short-handed La Grande squad Saturday at the Ash Grove Complex.
La Grande defeated the Baker girls 5-0. The boys teams played just two doubles matches because La Grande had just four available players. The teams split those doubles matches.
Baker's No. 1 doubles team of Isaac Mansuetti and Mathew Barnes won their match 6-3, 6-3.
The Bulldogs now get set for district Thursday and Friday in the Treasure Valley.
Thursday, the girls matches will be played at Nyssa, and the boys at Vale.
All of Friday's matches will be at Vale.
